COURTNEY COX'S PLAN TO SAVE MARRIAGE

The 44-year-old Bedtime Stories star has agreed to expand her family with David, but she's drawing the line at undergoing in vitro fertilization again, say sources.

After several miscarriages, Courteney endured multiple rounds of IVF and tried fertility drugs before conceiving the couple's daughter Coco, now 4. And now, according to insiders, Courteney has agreed to a compromise - adoption.

"David wants a sibling for Coco, but Courteney's reached a point where she feels it's hopeless to keep trying to get pregnant," a friend told The ENQUIRER.

The Friends beauty and 37-year-old David - who married in 1999 after meeting while filming the 1996 thriller Scream - plan to start adoption proceedings soon, said the friend.

But the couple faced a rough patch in their marriage after Courteney - whose last TV project Dirt lasted two seasons - signed on to star in and executive produce the upcoming ABC sitcom Cougar Town.

"They love each other very much, but with Courteney's intense work schedule and her resisting adoption, David started acting out, going out nights without her," said the friend.

As The ENQUIRER reported in October, David behaved like a wild and crazy single guy at a Hollywood nightspot, cozying up to a pretty brunette.

According to the insider, the super-busy couple rarely enjoyed romantic alone time, and David felt Courteney's best bud Jennifer Aniston - who has a standing Sunday night dinner invitation to their home - was a third wheel in their marriage.

"But now that Courteney's given the OK to adopting a brother or sister for Coco, David has agreed to scale back on nights out and be more accommodating to Jen," said the friend.

"It's a win-win scenario for Courteney and David." 

And Jen!
